What's the reason for this?

IIRC that was historically some port/os-specific compiler flag in olsrd
Personally I don't see any real reason to avoid (at least it in the
Linux world) - some architectures can actually only generate PIC and on
others it won't really hurt IMHO for almost all programs.
But I never really investigated the real differences in the assembler
code and their impacts ....
